A mural recently commissioned for Chatham High Street by the DNA project (Developing Neighbourhoods Approach) has given the go ahead to local artist Richard Jeferies.
Richard, from the Isle of Sheppey, is trained as an architect and has been running various creative workshops for over 10 years. He has been very involved with local arts projects, and is part of the team who developed the CreataboX art vending machine which will be launched at Fuse Festival 2013.
For the mural Richard hopes to bring a mix of art and recycling objects together for a unique display, which will be developed with a huge amount of help from the local community. The local community will also have the opportunity to develop ideas for the mural as well as actually make the mural. Richard also aims to create and launch the mural with events involving other creatives, including musicians and performers.
You can keep up to date with the development of the mural and call outs for help on Creatabot. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
